Project Kraken
Project Kraken is a national initiative to increase public awareness of terrorism and criminal or suspicious activity at marinas, moorings or on water.

Within Humberside force area we cover a huge expanse of water, from the east coast from Bridlington to Cleethorpes, the ports and docks in Hull, Goole, Grimsby, Immingham. Our rivers include the Humber, Ouse, Trent, River Hull, Derwent, Dutch River including several canal water ways.

If you live in a coastal area or around any of our waterways, if you work or know someone who works within the maritime industry or in and around water. Do you enjoy leisure time with family or walk your dog at the beach or on the river banks? Please be mindful and alert

What to look out for:
recording of power stations, military bases, bridges or critical infrastructure
taking photographs, notes or drawings of restricted areas or ‘vulnerable sites’ (power stations, for example)
an unusual vessel in a marina, or someone who seems to be testing the security of a marina or restricted area to see if they’re challenged

avoiding answering common boating questions or seemingly deliberately avoiding contact with other people or drawing attention to themselves

putting objects into the water near bridges, pipes or infrastructure

suspicious charters or rentals; someone asking to change a route or go closer to restricted areas
making large cash payments, or asking for daily extensions of marina or port mooring

buying or transporting unusual equipment, chemicals, uniforms or identification etc

trying to get employment at sensitive sites or with suppliers who have access to restricted areas or vulnerable sites
vehicles parked in isolated places along waterways
What you can do about it
If you see anything that makes you suspicious
Please 101 quoting Project Kraken. Or in the event of an emergency call999 .
